Holmsdale After School
and Holiday Club


Holmsdale’s After School and Holiday Club offer a range of exciting activities, based in the Barn (EYFS children) and the Brambles (Year 1 onwards).

We cater for children before and after school, taking them to and collecting them from several local schools. We are open from 7.30am and offer breakfast and a range of activities to choose from. We collect children from school at the end of the day and offer them tea. We then have time for activities or opportunity to do homework until we close at 6pm.

Our Holiday Club is very popular. We offer on site and off site activities throughout the school holidays. Please ask for more details of activities planned for the next holiday, but be quick as the spaces often book up fast!
